Welcome to OS X Lion Release Week?

Apple did not release OS X Lion last week despite most rumors pointing to July 14. Is this the week of the OS X Lion release?

Last week we expected Apple to release OS X Lion, but that did not happen. There is a rumor we reported about last week that says that OS X Lion and the new MacBook Air would arrive on Thursday, July 21. Some see the release of OS X 10.7 as late as July 28. At this point it seems nobody really knows when Apple is pulling the trigger.

Apple only gave July as a time frame for the OS X Lion release. Half of the month has past. Apple has to prepare for a massive assault of their App Store download servers. Along with making sure the OS X Lion release is stable enough this is a challenge to prepare. This is the first time Apple makes the OS X update available as download through the App Store. This will bring the service pretty sure to its limits. I actually expect it to go down in flames at release and we will be facing long wait time. I would be very surprised if Apple has a way to make the OS X Lion launch a great experience on launch day.

Mac OS X Lion is bringing 250 new features. OS X Lion will be available in July as a download from the Mac App Store for $29.99. Some of the features in Lion include: new Multi-Touch gestures; system-wide support for full screen apps; Mission Control, a view of everything running on your Mac; the Mac App Store, the best place to find and explore great software, built right into the OS; Launchpad, a new home for all your apps; and a completely redesigned Mail app.

Also make sure you have the latest Snow Leopard update to be able to download OS X Lion from the App Store. More OS X News.

New rumor says OS X Lion will be released as early as this Wednesday.
